Frequently Asked Questions

Feel free to use the online form below to ask us about anything. You may also have a look at the terminology used at the AAA Awards pages.

Your question:
Your email address:
  1. Q: Are you earning anything yourself? I.e. are all the money you get going to the ones winning the awards?
    A: Our goal is of course not to make a profit. We're glad if we can finance the diplomas, etc. by means of contribution. When and if we receive enough contributions, a sum of money will be added for the winners.

  2. Q: How much do the winners get?
    A: In terms of money, nothing yet. What they do get, is a fine hand-written diploma, and a very honorable recognition that they have accomplished something grand: The winner of the AAA Award International also receives a custom-made crystal glass Boing ball, with his/her/their name engraved on a plaque. Still, we hope to be able to add some money with time. It is all up to Amiga companies, user groups, etc. Please check our Contributions homepage for more information

  3. Q: There is any chance to know the candidates for the International awards?
    A: While we're accepting suggestions, we will not reveal any suggested candidates. When suggestion time is over some time in January each year, a jury will look into the suggestions, and nominate three final contestants. These will be published on the AAA Awards Homepage, for public voting. After a month or so, the results will be compiled, and kept secret until the presentations at Amiga shows world-wide. After the presentations, all suggestions will be made public. Please suggest your own candidate today!

  4. Q: Do you consider all suggested candidates equal ? Or is there a bonus if you're a "celebrity" ?
    A: All candidates are equal. To quote the AAA Award Rules:
    --
    §5  When selecting the final nominees, all juries world-wide have
    only one guideline:
    
    "The awards should go to he/she/that/those which/who has/have done
    the greatest achievement in contributing to the upkeeping of AMIGA®
    values during the past year."
    
    No other factors (financial, religious, personal or others) must 
    influence the decisions.
    --
    
    Of course, chances are that if you have done very much for the Amiga and its community, people know who you are. But simply being a "celebrity" is not, and shall never be, a merit on its own.
